Wonderful fragrance. Really great.
The Taste Of Fragrance line was made by making the original perfumes in one vat, and the taste enhancer in another. The two were added together only after they had the time to evolve on their own. That way, you can smell all the thing that are so great about the originals, but with a big extra.
I can only compare this fragrance to a journey. Salted Butter Caramel makes a journey through the fragrance, teaming up with the three main notes of Alien and showing a different aspect of each.
First, he encounters Jasmine and gives it a slightly boozy aspect. Intoxicating, but more toned down, more tempered than in the original. Caramel lingers awhile with Jasmine, but decides that she isn't the one he's looking for and continues his search.
Next, he meets Cashmeran. Sharp, dusty and comforting. He puts a thick layer of caramel over her to subdue her sharp dustyness. But then he realises, despite the interesting combo they make, they are just too unalike and he continues his search.
At last, Caramel sees Amber, and he realises she is the one. They make eachother bloom.
The salt enhances the sweetness of the caramel and the vanilla-aroma of the amber. A sweet, but not cloyingly sweet, delicious, gourmand blend that lasts and lasts and lasts.
In the original the amber stage is more of a skin scent, but mixed with the caramel it's far stronger. So delicious, but also beautiful at the same time.
